Forensic Team did not collect Sushant Singh Rajput’s finger swabs and nail clippings; comes out as major negligence in the case

A major ignorance has been recorded from the forensic team of Mumbai in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case. According to the sources, the team of forensic surgeons missed out to collect finger swabs and nail clippings of Sushant, the day the unpleasant incident took place.
 
While this could be called an extreme dereliction of duty, on the other hand, the experts say that the dust particles on fingers and nails could have contributed to unfolding foul play in the matter. A forensic surgeon from a city medical college says that the swab could have indicated if dust particles from the ceiling fan were present on Sushant's fingers. This would have cleared the ambiguity over foul play as well.
 
Meanwhile, the forensic team confirmed that the autopsy which was performed on Sushant on 14 June does not reveal any external injuries on the body. In addition, the reports for drug presence and other intoxicated materials in the body has also turned out negative.
 
Dr. Rukmini Krishnamurthy, Former Director of State FSL, in a leading tabloid, said that if the police had sealed the crime scene immediately and allowed the FSL team and forensic surgeons to visit the place before anyone else, they would have gained relevant evidence.
 
Nevertheless, a major development in the case has been marked. The Chief Minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar recommended a CBI probe in the matter yesterday which might ensue rift between Bihar and Maharashtra Government.
 
Maharashtra Home Minister, Anil Deshmukh has earlier condemned CBI probe demand in Sushant Singh Rajput case. In one of the interviews, he said - "The case is now being politicised for political gains. The Mumbai Police is investigating the matter thoroughly and it is capable of getting at the truth."
